Junior Sailing



The End of Financial Year is almost here and what better time to help your Club thrive than by donating towards our budding Junior Sailors.

Perth Flying Squadron Yacht Club has a few big goals in 2019, one of them is raising enough money which will enable us to help our Junior Sailors and their development as well as investing in junior infrastructure. 

To reach our goal we are calling on our Members to help support this development fund. This development fund will go straight back into the Perth Flying Squadron Yacht Club Junior community! 

We are fundraising in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation to allow tax-deductible donations. Without contributions from our Members, we won't have the chance to thrive, grow and be as successful as we can be! The future can be bigger and bright for us with your help.

You can make a tax deductible donation by clicking here, You will receive a tax-deductible receipt from the Australian Sports Foundation which you can include in your tax return,
